On May 16, 2019, Harding Road and Kenmount Road campus students and staff attended Academy Canada’s Annual Convocation Ceremony at the Arts and Culture Centre in St. John’s. The auditorium was full with family, friends, guests, and 236 graduating students.
Ms. Anita Morgan, St. John’s Campuses “Regional Director”, began with opening remarks and introduced several speakers including Mr. James Loder, Head Office Representative, Ms. Sarah Gilliam, graduate guest speaker from the Construction/Industrial Electrician program, and Mr. Connor Crocker, School Valedictorian and graduate from the Cook program.

The President’s Award is Academy Canada’s highest honour awarded to one student from each campus reflecting the ideals we strive to instil in our graduates including leadership, professionalism, positive attitude, good overall average, and a willingness to participate in school and extra-curricular activities.
Staff members provide recommendations to Academy Canada President, Mr. Mike Barrett, who selects a recipient. A difficult decision to make as several students were deserving of this award.
Ms. Colleen Power presented this award to Ms. Charlene Brook, Kenmount Road Campus Multimedia Graphic Design Student, and Ms. Suzanne Jordan presented the award to Ms. Wanda Cumby, Harding Road Campus Natural Resources Student.
Congratulations to both recipients.
